Cathy Thompson Brink

CLAYTON, N.C. – Cathy Lorraine Thompson Brink, 65, passed away Sunday, April 28, 2019.
A memorial service will be held at 6:00 pm on Saturday, May 4th at Bryan-Lee Funeral Home in Garner.
Cathy was born in Carlsbad, New Mexico on July 14, 1953 to the late Robert and Catharine “Kay” Thompson. She was raised in El Paso, Texas with her two, older brothers and always spoke fondly of her years at Crockett Elementary and Austin High School, where she played flute in the marching band. She studied at UTEP and worked for years as a legal secretary in El Paso before she and her husband moved to New Mexico, where she worked for the District Attorney’s office while running her own business process serving. They then moved to North Carolina, where she enjoyed her last years with her adoring children and grandchildren. In addition to her parents, Cathy was preceded in death by her brother, Kenneth Thompson and her niece, Ivonnette Thompson.
She is survived by her loving husband of 30 years, Stan Brink; daughter, Rochelle Carson and husband, Kendall; son, Nathan Smith; granddaughters, Miriya, Aislin, and Adaleigh; brother, Larry Thompson; step-children, Scott, Shawn, and Stacey and grandchildren; much extended family; and her beloved furry companions, Cooper, Foxy, and Marty.
Cathy was loved by all the people who had the privilege of knowing her, and she loved all people and, especially, all animals. Flowers are welcome or memorial contributions may be made in Cathy’s memory to the World Wildlife Fund.

    I went to high school with Cathy and we were both in the band. I remember Cathy as very cheerful and kind to everyone she met. Cathy always had a smile and never said an unkind word about anyone. She was the sweetest most caring person I have ever met. Like Cathy I moved away from El Paso, but I was very fortunate to have reconnected with her on FB. I always looked forward to waking up and seeing her beautiful pictures. I think those pictures represented her nature and kind soul. It’s sad that we lost Cathy, but Heaven will be a better place because of her. It is one of my greatest joys to have met Cathy and to have been a small part of her life. See you soon my old friend.
